Susan Brennan, Ph.D.
Stanford University (1990)
I am a cognitive scientist who studies the psychology of language use--in particular, interactive spoken dialogue. Some of my current studies use eye-tracking, either as a measure of language processing or as a mode of communication. I also study the human use of technology, especially speech and language interfaces to computers. Previously, I developed a computational model of caricature.
